How do I add a new company to IMDbPro?


You can add a new company page a couple of ways:

  1. Connecting a new company to a title page (For example, if your company has a credit on a title, you can add your company via the title’s page)
  2. Connecting a new company to a name page. (If your company has an employee or client currently listed on the site, you can edit that person’s page and add a new company)

The easiest way to create a new company on IMDbPro is to attach it to a piece of information already on the site.


Adding your new company via a Title page.

  1. To attach a new company to an existing title page we will need to start there. For example your company is a new Product Placement company and just signed a contract to provide product placement services for a new James Bond movie. Start by going to the title/movie on IMDbPro, scrolling to the bottom and clicking Edit Page.

  2. On the next page, scroll to the Company Credits section. Currently, there are 4 specific types of companies as well as “Miscellaneous Company” listed in this section. Please choose to Add 1 credit (or more if you need) to the appropriate section. Note: All companies that are not Production Companies, Distributors, Sales Reps or Special Effects companies fall into the Miscellaneous Companies bucket (such as the product placement company in this example).



  3. Scroll to the bottom and click on continue.

  4. On the next page, you will type in your company’s name and include the country code in square brackets. Let’s call the company Hollywood Products. Since it is based in the United States, it will have [us] listed at the end like this: Hollywood Real Products [us] .



  5. Suggestions will be shown as we do not want to create duplicated companies and if a suggestion shown matches your company name please only select this if you are sure it is the correct page otherwise you will add a new credit to another company.

  6. Please refer to our Company Naming Conventions submission guide.

  7. And also the full list of country codes we use.

  8. If you chose Miscellaneous Company, you will now choose a role describing what your credit is for. Or you can type in the role (such as Product Placement).






  9. Click Check these updates.

  10. On the next page, you’ll see either green, yellow or red boxes.

  11. If you see green boxes, it means your company is already in the database and you can follow the remainder of the on-screen instructions.

  12. If you see red boxes, there is a problem with your submission. Most likely you’ve not added the country code in square brackets (see above and feel free to copy the brackets in our example if you don’t know what they are).

  13. If you see yellow boxes, there are additional questions for you to answer. Most often, you will see a list of potential matches for your company name. If you see a match, please choose it if you are confident the page is correct. If you don’t see a match, the last option on the list is: “Add this as a new company” with the additional option of adding contact data to the company. Please choose that option if applicable.



  14. Click Re-check these updates.

  15. You should now see green boxes meaning the data is ready to submit. If you see yellow boxes, please read the questions on the screen and clarify/verify what it needs. Click Re-check these updates.

  16. At this point, all the boxes should be green and you can click Submit these updates.

  17. Once you submit the change, you will be taken to a Thank You screen which will have your Contribution Number listed for future reference. This reference number will also be sent to your email address and will always be available in your contribution history.

Adding your new company via a Name page.


  1. To attach a new company to person, you will need to start at their name page. For example the individual is the CEO of your company.

  2. Go to the person's page on IMDbPro, scrolling to the bottom and clicking Edit Page. On the next page, scroll to Contact Details section. Please choose to Add 1 item (or more if you need) to the appropriate section. 

  3. Scroll to the bottom and click on Continue.

  4. On the next page, you will type in your company’s name and include the country code in square brackets. Let’s call the company Hollywood Products. Since it is based in the United States, it will have [us] listed at the end like this: Hollywood Products [us] .
